As the principal designer of Flowform Design Group, George Verdolaga visits many places to find furniture, artwork and exotic materials for his clients, often supplementing his international finds with inexpensive pieces picked up locally. George likes to use his 840 sqft. condo as a lob for experimenting with new ideas. One of the first things that George did after buying the space a few years was to remove the high-maintenance carpet and replace these with walnut floors. “Carpet is tough on allergy-sufferers like me”. Next items to be updated were the kitchen and bathrooms. Old oak cabinets and linoleum floors were torn out and replaced with granite-topped kitchen cabinets and ceramic tile floors. The bathroom’s existing beige floor and wall tiles were replaced with dark grey tile floor and large-format matte wall-tiles. The formerly ascetic white walls were painted in a much warmer Beige colour and hung with contemporary artwork by Calgary graphic artist Mark Abesamis, laser-etched paintings by Seattle artist Scott Alberts and Japanese woodcut-style art by Danvic Briones. The result is a very soothing and contemporary space that George and his wife like to come home to for relaxation and for entertaining their various friends and family.
